Peninsula Ridge’s Ratafia is made from unfermented Chardonnay juice that is fortified with fruit spirits to a final alcohol of 18%/vol. Stabilized by the alcohol, this product undergoes no fermentation and is aged in French Oak for approximately 16 months.
A nose of orange and candied tangerine peel. Very well balanced on the palate with flavours of hazelnut, crème brulée and caramel. Delicious!
The texture is smooth, well balanced between sweetness and alcohol. A long, warm finish. Deceptively powerful!
An extraordinary pleasure on its own as an aperitif, to begin the evening, or for dessert.
